27th Sunday after Pentecost
St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, Archbishop of Myra in Lycia
Hebrews 13:17-21; Luke 6:17-23
Troparion (Tone 4)
In truth thou wast revealed to thy flock as a rule of faith, an image of humility and a teacher of abstinence; thy humility exalted thee; and thy poverty enriched thee. O Hierarch Father Nicholas, entreat Christ our God that our souls may be saved!
Kontakion (Tone 3)
Thou didst appear as a priest in Myra, O Saint Nicholas, fulfilling the Gospel of Christ, O venerable one; thou didst lay down thy life for thy people and didst rescue the innocent from death. Therefore, thou hast been blest as a great initiate of the grace of God.
